Worms dev back in the third-party publishing business


1:00 AM on 11.14.2013



Team17, the crazy minds behind the Worms series, are returning to their roots and becoming a third-party publisher once more. The company started as a publisher 23 years ago, putting out such titles as Alien Breed, Super Stardust, and many more.

Here's why the studio went back into the publishing business:

"Ultimately, the timing is right; Team17 is in a very fortunate position with a wealth of personal experience to share. Team17 has an incredible community running into many millions that we can cross-promote within and raise awareness for new IPs and specifically indie games, which are very close to our hearts and something we stand up for. Team17 is home to an awesome digital publishing team who have topped every digital chart from PC, console and mobile over the last couple of years."

The first title to be published by Team17 is Light, an indie game by developer Just a Pixel. You can check it out on the Steam Greenlight page.

As an homage to retro platformers it was a joy to play, and the ridiculously cheap base price made it easy to take the plunge. Gunman Clive 2 delivers pretty much everything you'd want out of a sequel, even if it doesn't push the envelope.more

February's Xbox One Games with Gold is already out

February's the shortest month of the year, but Xbox is artificially lengthening it by spilling it over into January. That's the only way to explain this month's Xbox One Games with Gold already popping up for free on the Xbox...more

1996-style shooter Strafe looks like the start of something great

I've greatly enjoyed the promotional work that's gone into Strafe, also known as STRAFE®, also known as "the goriest shooter of 1996." But beyond the head-exploding live-action throwback trailer, wonderful as that was (h...more
